"Pressure Acquisition & Analysis, From the Inside Out"
Course objective is to take the pressure-transducer novice to a whole new level. the goal is for the technician with labscope/engine mechanical operation knowledge to gain the abillity to capture pressure waveforms (from the intake manifold/tailpipe and in-cylinder) and be able to use the information to make diagnostic decisions.
The course will cover transducer functionality with both absolute transducers as well as delta transducers. It will touch on the benefits and characteristics of both types of transducers and how they can be used to gain an edge. Diagnostic-approach will be carried out using real world examples and actual case studies from my own library. Attendees leave with confidence to invest in the tooling to perform pressure testing and analysis to improve accuracy and efficiency.
Brandon Steckler: Brandon began his career in Northampton County Community College in Bethlehem, PA. There, he was a student of GM’s Automotive Service Educational program. In 2001, he graduated top of his class and earned the GM Leadership award for his efforts. He later began working as a technician at a Saturn dealership in Reading, PA where he quickly attained Master Technician status. He later transitioned to working with Hondas where he aggressively worked to attain another Master Technician status.Always having a passion for a full-understanding of system/component functionality, he rapidly earned a reputation for deciphering strange failures at an efficient pace and became known as an information specialist amongst the staff and peers at the dealership. In search of new challenges, he once again transitioned away from the dealership and to the independent-world, where he specializes in diagnostics and drivability. Today, he is a working technician at a large facility near the NE side of Philadelphia, PA. Along with beta testing for Automotive Test Solutions, he writes for Motor Age Magazine, teaches for CarQuest Technical Institute as well as WorldPAC, INC. and develops curriculum/submits case studies for other training companies. Brandon contributes weekly to FaceBook Automotive Chat groups and truly enjoys helping others to attain a level of understanding that will serve them well throughout their careers.

Critical Diagnostic Steps for Driveability Eric Ziegler
This seminar takes a critical thinking or logical approach to address many of the issues that face techs every day - working on systems that are new to them or that they have little or no experience diagnosing. The course is a mix of critical thinking, theory, diagnostic testing methods, tooling and real-world case studies. Four areas will be addressed:
- Mechanical testing,
- Fuel trim diagnostics,
- Ignition testing
- Network communication issues.
Graphing scan data, archiving data and other useful diagnostic software will be discussed as well. Lots of real-world, not-so-forward case studies will be used to illustrate these processes and techniques. * See how you can diagnose each type of problem with both basic tools and high tech tools. * Learn how to figure out what to do next in your diagnostic process. * See what your results should be and where to go next. * See a quick review of the "Flatrater" test drive and how to gather information.
